APPLE MEN TO
GO IT ALONE
The Hood River Apple Growera'union
will continue as a separate organisation.
At a , meeting of the stockholders of
the Apple Growers' union Saturday
morning, by a decisive vote the board
of directors were instructed not to amal
gamate. It was the belief of some of
tlie apple men that their onion should
unite with the Hood River Fruit Grow
ers' union, and the meeting in theopcra
uouse oauiruay morning was lor tne
purpose of discussing the proposition.
Originally the meeting was a joint ses
sion of the two fruit unions. U. J.
Gessling, president of the board of di
rectors of the Hood River Fruit Grow
ers' union, called the meeting to order.
E. II. Shupard, secretary of the union,
acted as secretary of the meeting and on
motion the temporary officers were
made permanent officers of the meeting.
After a few minutes discussion, the
joint meeting took a recess until 1 o'clock.
the members of the Apple Growers
union went into session and discussed
pro and con the consolidation of the
apple union with 'lie strawberry union,
or rather the Hood River Fruit Growers'
A. I. Mason, president of the Apple
Growers' union, as he took the chair,
went on to state that from a business
stand point he was heartily in favor of
amalgamation with the other union.He
believed that personalities in the matter
of a manager and meraWs of board of
directors should be laid aside and the
whole questiou be decided upon its mer
G. R. Castner then arose and er
plained why he favored uniting the
unions, lie went on to speak ot the ne
cessity oi an orirninzntioQ among farm
ers, and thought that by combining, the
iruit growers would gain m strength-.
One man could be secured to look after
the shipping of the fruit. Mr. Castner
then discussed the cost of buying stock
in the Fruit Grower's union.
E. L. Smith was called for. He said
while he was not directly interested in
an apple union at present, his young
orchard not being in bearing yet, he
he was strongly in favor of an organiza
tion among the fruit growers. In fact,
he declared, the success of the fruit in
dustry in Hood River valley depends on
organization of the growers. As to
amalgamation ot the two unions he was
personally opposed to the plan, but
whatever the majority of the growers
thought best he was willing
to abide by. The apple industry
is hut in its beginning Mr. Smith said.
While Hood River will uroliahlv not
have over 75,000 boxes this year, it will
not De many years until tne valley will
have half a million buMhels. The apple
industry is going to become the leading
business of the farmers ; berries will be
secondary. If the unions unite one
would have to share the deficit of the
other should there be any. It is diffi
cult for the farmers to hold together, he
knew. The temptations to break away
from the union were many. But were
it not for the union the growers would
he entirely at the mercy of the fruit buy
ers. Organization of the growers must
be kept up.
President Mason declared the historv
of the commercial world showed a tend
ency toward the concentration of efforts.
Generalization of industries and labor
organizations have proved the success
of the movement Two fruit unions
mean a greater cost to the growers it
means two warehouses, two managers,
two offices, salaries for managers and
clerks. From an economical stand point
he thus strongly urged consolidation of
the union. The fruit seasons he de
clared overlapped.With small fruits and
summer apples the seasons run the one
into the other. From a business stand
point amalgamation was the better pol
icy. liutif there is to be dissention, the
apple growers had better keep to them
selves. And if they cannot stand by
their own organization they had better
give up the union idea. To make it a
success the directors must be backed up
in their undertakings. It is a case of
sink or swim. The union cannot exist
if some of the members use the organi
zation as a club to raise prices and then
make it possible for some of the mem
bers to sell their fruit to outside prrties
who are anxious to see the union fail,
"By amalgamation the union will be
strengthened. Let us have one grand
organization of the fruit growers of Hood
River valley. It would be a less com
plicated concern in the commercial
J. II. Shoemaker favored the merger.
He considered it more economical. One
manager could be secured who could
keep in touch with the fruit markets
whole year through. If the farmer
has anything to sell, he can then bring
it to town and there will be somebody
to handle the marketing of the stuff.
Growers cannot keep in touch with the
markets. Growing the fruit takes all
his time. Mr. Shoemaker was willing to
take stock in the strawberry union at
the price it was worth. He strongly
urged the the farmers to stand together
in whatever they undertook. 'Why"
lie said, "Farmers are the worst set of
fellows in the world to keep together.
There is nothing like them. They are
in one respect the darndest set in the
world.and I am one of them."
B. R. Tucker declared he had attend
ed the first meeting in Hood River
wiled for the purpose of agitating tbe
formation ol a union. This meeting was
held, he said, in tbe Smith school house
11 years ago. He has attended every
growers' meeting since then. The far
mers have learned a lot since thoy first
organized in Hood River. Looking back
he could see tbe progress they had made
in that time. Tbe mishaps have lieen
their own fault. The fact the Fruit
Grower's union is not the sole shipping
concern in the valley is the fault of the
farmers themselves. Had they stuck
together there would have been no ne
cessity for any ether organization. It is
the fault of the farmers, be declared
"Put a mule in with a drove of other
animals and it ia impossible to drive
him," said the speaker, "but with the
farmer, you enn neither drive nor lead
him. When the farmers organize, too
many of them want the business con
ducted on their own plan or they won't
Continuing, Mr. Tucker said be knew
of instances where the farmers sold
their best fruit to outside buyers and
then disposed of their second grade stuff
through the union. He believed the
growers should combine for the good of
their pockets. "Let ns see what we can
do," said be, "let us pool our fruit, go
together, and pull together. By keeping
out of the union we are putting our
fruit in direct competition with the
fruit of our neighbor; iu fact, with our
selves. The whole proposition is clear
to a man of judgement.
Henry Avery said the people of Egger
mont were pleased with th work of
tbe Apple Growers' union, and were
ready to co-operate with them again. If
the growers ef apples and strawberries
stand together it means success in either
branch of fruitgrowing.
J. L. Carter declared most organiza
tions start out with plenty of enthusi
asm, but as soou as some obstacle is en
encountered too many of the members
are overly anxious to drop it. When
nuwi mver is snipping nan a million
boxes of apples a rear, the Apple Grow
era'union should have plenty of strength
ne saia. nir. carter was well pleased
with what the union had done so far,
and was anxious to stand by the inde
Chris Dethman believed the union
would succeed provided the growers
would agree to stand by the action of
the board of directors.
t. W. Angus favored a consolidation
of the management in the interest of
K. Marknam was of the opinion
that the berry men would ask not ions
exhorbitant of the apple men if they
choose to go into the union. He was
anxious tor harmony. Mr. Markham
considered it was harder to look after
the markets than to raise the fruit.
By this time the question under dis
cussion was forgotten and the apple

conducting their union. 'Mason reiter
ated the idea previously brought forth
by the board of directors, that the union
could not he a success unless the grow
ers could be made to contract with the
directors that they would market their
crop through the union,
V. Winchell then brought up the idea
that some of the growers often found it
necessary to have a cash advance on
their crop. Thev had bills to meet
and expected to pay them from their
apple crop. Therefore it would work a
hardship if thev had to ship all tlmir
fruit through the union and wait sev
eral months for their money.
This brought Mr. Castner to his feet,
who declared that if the union was able
to do business as their competitors did
did they would have no fear for success.
Mr. Mason then suggested that the

Tlie Minneapolis correspondent of
The Packer has also had good thiuga to
say about Hood River strawberries. We
quote from a recent issue of that naner:
i nere nas neen in Minneapolis a very
fine trade on Hood River berries. Thev
arrived in good condition and have
found a ready market ail season, so far,
at 25 to 50 cents per case more than the
ordinary berry. Mr. Callender of the
Lallender-Vanderhoof company, says:
'When the Hood Rivers become well
known throughout the country, there
will be a greater demand than for any
other berries, as the quality is better
and they will find a better market.' "
A number of years ago when a meet
ing of the Oregon State Horticultural
society met at Hood River, C. E. Hos
kins, the leading authority on cherries
in Oregon, said conditions there ap
peared so favorable for cherries that he
believed anorchardist would be justified
in setting out a large orchard of that
fruit. We notice that at the present
time the cherry is declared to be one of
the most reliable fruits grown in the
Hood River section and that a fruit
grower at White Salmon is preparing
to set his whole farm with that fruit.
The best results and largest profits
are obtained bjr specialists. This is true
of farm operations, but in most cases
the farm socialist finds it necessary to
combine other branches of farming
with that of producing his specialty.
The man who makes a distinguished
success of breeding somo particular
Btrain of animals is usually as an inci
dent a more than ordinarily good f armer
in other lines and particularly in the
production oi the lorage consumed by
his animals. Men who follow special
lines of fruit growing achieve the best
results but there are few who can do so
and confine their farming operations
to the one line of fruit. The strawberry
growers of Hood River are specialists
and the success they have achieved
shows what tlie intelligent specialist
can do under favorable conditions.
And yet tlie strawberry growers of
Hood River are beginning to see that
they cannot safely confine themselves
wnouy to tne production of strawberries.

One of the longest race nieetimrs ever
attempted in Oregon will open in Port
land on August ana continue to Au
gust 28, and possibly through (lie first
two weeks in September. A largo force
of workmen are rushing the work of
getting Irvington race track in shape
for the coming meet. Already trainers
and owners are shipping their strings
to the track, and the officers of the
Multnomah Fair Association are pre
paring to Btable 500 horses, tho pick of
those now racing at Seattle. '
WhenPresidentA.lt. Diamond and
the rest of the Multnomnh Fair Associa
tion officials talked of giving a week's
racing lost year, they were told frankly
by the local horsemen that the nicino
game had received such a black eye in
Portland that the public would not turn
out to see them, in snite' of thi? dis
couraging talk tho officials went on,
gave the race meeting, proved conclu
sively that horses could be raced and
raced honestly, and not only tho people
of Portland paid their money at the
gate, but horsemen from nil over tho
state attended the meeting. And when
they returned home they were loud in
their praises for tho ilenn sport which
they had enjoyed, and of tho liberal
manner in which the books handled tho
odds on tho races. This was all the
encouragement that tlie association
wanted, and thev began at onco to u an
for their 1!HM August meeting. . '
most oi trie norsemcn who raced in
Portland last fall declared when thev
departed that nothing could keep thorn
irom returning, rsol only havo they '
kept their word, but they assisted in
filling the stake book entries when it
was sent to Oakland and Los Alice es.
Originally tho association planned only
to care for 300 horses, but the demands
lorBiau room Decamo so great that, it
was found necessary to build 200 addi
tional stalls. They have just been com
pleted, and are mo most modern and
up-to-date stalls on tho coast. Thev
are constructed after those at Washing
ton Park, Chicago, and at Saratoga,
and aro so arranged that sleeping quar
ters lor mo trainers ana runners are in
a sort of loft over the horses. Last year
it cost the association $15,000 to get
Irvington into shape, and this year
$7,000 more has been spent. The entire
grand stand, tho saddling paddock and
tne junger ana tuners' stands will be
painted anew and every stall will re
ceive a thick coating of whitewash.
It is the intention of tho association
this year to give 1 10,000 aivnv in purses
for the stake events alone, This assures
big fields in each of the events, and it
will bring together some of the best
horses racing on tlie coast. The Oregon

them aro such horses as Misty's Pride,

Spencer last on the Hand.
Charles Spencer, liurseron his father's
steamer, was in Hood River 'Thursday
afternoon, as was also II. C. Cainplioll,
manager of the Regulator llhe. The
stories each had to tell regarding the
condition of the Spencer were divergent
Mr. Campbell wore a smile. He cave
unmistakable evidence of pleasure to
think the opposition boat would not
bother him for many a long week. "No,
you won't hear the Spencer whistle for
several moons," remarked Mr. Camp
bell. "The Spencer is on tho sands
good and hard, and she won't come off
until the high ' ater next summer."
It was Mr. Jampboll's opinion' that
the Spencer is very badly damaged.
He claimed the hogging of the steamer
not only broke some of the steam pipes,
the ends of one being over a foot apart,
but many of the deck planks aro brok
en. Some of the beams are parted and
the ' woodwork of tho cabins badly
wrenched. Both how and stern rest oil
the sand, he said, while tho center of
the boat Is elevated about two feet. Tho
break is where the boat was spliced hist
year, when Captain Spencer had tier
lengthened 30 feet.
The Regulator company takes advan
tage of theso reports ami advertises in
the Portland papers that their steamers
are not the kind that break their hog
chains in a storm and have to hang up
on ary iana me greater part oi the year.
Tlie story Charles Spencer has to tell
is an altogether different one. He
makes tho assertion that tho captain of
tho Bailey Gatzert absolutely refused to
lend assistance to his steamer. Mr.
Spencer and his fireman took out tow
ropes to the Gatzert as she was passing
up Wednesday night, and asked for a
lift. Captain Sherman of the Gatzert
is said to have refused to help tow the
stranded boat into deep water. He said
it would endanger the lives of tlie pas
sengers he had aboard; furthermore ho
had orders from his comnanv not to
lend any assistance to Captain Spencer's
Mr. Spencer said if the Gatzert had
assisted him Wednesday afternoon his
steamer would have been safely in
Portland the next day. Ho was very
indignant at the discourtesy of his rival
in the steamlioat business.
The Stranded steamer cannot be res
cued now until the water goes down,
when timbers will bo taken up ami
ways built for hauling tlie steamer into
deep water. The steamer lies 300 or
400 feet from deep water. ' '
Mr. Spencer denies that his steamer
is as badly injured as the reports have
gone out. The broken hog chains havo
been replaced, and the vessel is not
parting in tne center, says ne.
